New Delhi: PV Sindhu lost the much-awaited match against top Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal in the Indian Badminton League on Thursday.
Saina beat the younger Hyderabadi girl in straight sets 21-19 21-8. Sindhu had won the first singles women’s bronze for the country in the recently concluded World Badminton Championship.
But a defeat at the hands of world number four Saina and that too in straight sets will surely encourage the 18-year-old Sindhu to work harder on her game.
In fact after beating Sindhu, Saina stated: “The way Sindhu plays, I’m sure she has a bright future ahead.”
The way she beat a couple of top Chinese players en route to the semis of World Championship, Sindhu certainly has a good future ahead.
